Orifice Meter Installation Configurations With and Without Flow Conditioners

This report reviews data from twelve facilities, some made available since the original 1997 paper was circulated, on the effects of upstream installation geometries and flow conditioners on orifice meter flow measurements. Details of the test facility configurations and the measured discharge coefficients are presented in several appendixes.

Summary:
This report is based on a 1997 American Petroleum Institute White Paper on orifice meter installation effects. The 1999 revisions of the North American orifice meter standard API 14.3 Part 2 (ANSI 2530, AGA-3) and international standard ISO-5167 in the areas of installation configurations and prescribed meter run length were based to a large degree on that White Paper. This report reviews data from twelve facilities, some made available since the original 1997 paper was circulated, on the effects of upstream installation geometries and flow conditioners on orifice meter flow measurements. Details of the test facility configurations and the measured discharge coefficients are presented in several appendixes. Acceptance criteria for the data are briefly discussed. Based on the final set of accepted data, recommendations are made for minimum meter run lengths between orifice plates and upstream equipment, including elbows, tees, valves, headers, and where possible, flow conditioners. Recommendations are made for tests needed to establish further installation standards. A proposed general performance test for flow conditioners is also outlined.
